coming in with big plans that us, the taxpayers, just can't afford. >> well, steve, does it matter that we're losing employer-based health care plans, if more people are actually getting covered? >> yes, exactly. this plan is going to cover just about everybody. it makes me difference whether they get their health insurance through an employer or whether they get it through an exchange or some other way, through medicaid. as a matter of fact, having employer-based health care is bad for american business period. it hurts our international competitiveness. we would be better to move away from that system and replace it with something else, with guaranteed coverage for everybody. >> brenda: okay, john layfield, tell me what you think about that? >> i think free pizza for everybody. let's just get the rich kids to pay for it, isn't that what the student council ran on this last election. >> the slice-- >> and the problem we have here is we did not have health reform, we had insurance reform. what john is talking about is right, we added 30 to 50 million people to the reform-- to the i

that they're not all saints. could some of them be using this as an excuse to harass people? >> is there any logic even in that decision? look at this, if you have a minority neighborhood filled with minorities, you are going to have an overrepresentation of people if these-- there is no logic to any of this, you have to show a the pattern of choice of minority and you go into a 98% black or hispanic neighborhood and you stop and frisk people and then there are complaints that they're almost all black doesn't make sense. >> paul: and this gets to terry versus ohio 1968 a supreme court case said at that stop and frisk was legal and police could go outside and check people's clothing, but ne needed more than a hunch. they needed a specific set of facts to be able to justify it. >> they need a reasonable suspicion to do that. and in these cases, reasonable suspicion does exist. can abuse happen or can people be harassed? >> yes. these are situations where some of the people they're frisking are carrying guns, cops working in violent situations and it's up to the people managing the police depar
